"nightly news" begins now. >>> good evening. among industrialized nations, spying is considered something everybody does but nobody likes to talk about. the problem for the u.s. right now is everybody is talking about it and each day seems to bring a new allegation concerning the extent to which the u.s. has spied on other nations, especially our allies and friends. it's all coming from one man, edward snowden and the secrets he made off before he left as a u.s. intelligence analyst. now the white house is scrambling to soothe feelings while fielding questions about how much the president knew. we begin in washington tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. andrea, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. the white house is under fire from its closest allies. for the firs
over obama's new health care law, it has to do with what president obama has been telling americans about how this will affect health insurance for individual buyers. >> if you like your dr., you will be able to keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, he will be able to keep your health care plan. first of all, if you have health insurance and you like your dr. and you like your plan, you can keep your doctor and he can keep your plan. no matter what you have heard, if you like your doctor and you like your plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage of the plan you have. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. our approach would preserve the ride up -- the right of americans to keep their plan. >> we are now learning that that couldn't be further from the truth. 15 to 75% expect to get notification that their health insurance has been canceled. that is all because their existing policies may not meet the standards mandated by the new health care

a journalist is not something i appreciate we have laws that model the region have positive things in their place and as long as the internet is not shut down one reason i am concerned about privacy is i want people to trust online communication or find things out without being watched all the time. people can now be there are a journalist in many ways they can enter one of those the most interesting about politics of the mideast because they could have a block or get an audience i dunno if you are familiar but there are plenty of people who are stuck give the scholarly mode retracts nobody would reid but now they could find a mass audience there is a lot of debate on the internet the things you were talking about for instance, the chelsea manning. he lives a few blocks from me but rinaldi is seen as a hero. and it to have 500 students who had never heard of them but into a three hours they could learn a great deal in know more about the break-in of his psychiatrist office what the government did. i don't like to get baum doubt that we lost hour old mechanisms. i am understand. tel
, we'll have to charge more. there are reasons to not be too afraid. the law has various complicated mechanisms that compensate insurers, a lot of cost will get transferred to taxpayers and that's a problem for the federal budget but may not be a problem for the insurance market. as long as the system is working right for 2015, the insurers will say we had an unusual circumstance where we ended up with a lot of sick people and now cross our fingers, it is working in 2015 and we expect more signups. they may not push the rates up so much. the insurers have a lot of reasons to want it to work. they don't want a death spiral with skyrocketing insurance rates more than any of the rest of us do. it's not time to panic yet. the sooner the better they can get the website fixed the less we have to worry about the enrollment problems. >> extending and delaying was not an original part of the plan, but neither were the incredibly problematic glitches that we're having to deal with now. there's -- i'm really not that surprised you have a number of democrats pushing the extending at least the en

. that could be something he might do. there are apparently some provisions in german law if he came here and testified before a germ parliamentary inquiry committee which is something the german parliament set up, apparently there is a paragraph in the law that would not allow germany to then extradite that person to another country. there might be some sort of provisions, some ways to work that. honestly the german government would probably do everything to try and prevent that. german officials have been saying go enand again, they're very, very angry but want to clarify the situation. they want an apology from the u.s. and want to move on. they certainly don't want edward snowden to become an issue between the two countries. right now, even his lawyer says with things the way they are right now, he would advise his client to stay in russia, suzanne seve fred pleitgen in germany. just a point of clarification. mr. sfroebler is not the foreign minister. we had that on screen. he's a member of the opposition green party, a bit of a maverick in the german parliament. just want a clarifica

in the cr we passed a law that president obama signed. quote, prior to making such credits and deductions available, the secretary shall certify that the exchanges verify such eligibility consistent with the requirements of the act. here's the question. are we really verifying at the front end whether a person is actually eligible for these subsidies or not? and here's why this matters. if they're not eligible for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're ask
